FLOYD SONNIER (1933-2002), known to many as "The Artist of the Cajuns," was a lifelong resident of the Cajun Country of south Louisiana. An internationally acclaimed pen-and-ink artist, he graduated in commercial art from the University of Southwestern Louisiana in Lafayette in 1961 after serving a brief stint in the U.S. Army. In a prolific career that spanned a quarter of a century, he specialized in drawings that depict life in the old-time Cajun culture, particularly scenes set in the first half of the Twentieth Century.
A native of the Pointe Noire community near Church Point, La., he was married to Verlie Gay of Church Point in 1965. They have four children, Gil, Mark, Tim and Annette.Language Notes:
